Greenwood Cemetery 

You may know that Owen Sound’s Greenwood Cemetery has three Victoria Cross Recipients interred within it, William Avery Bishop V.C., Thomas Holmes V.C., and David Vivian Currie V.C. 


But, there are many other interesting military figures that have been laid to rest in its grounds since its 1854 creation.  Cemeteries are wonderful places to explore as they contain many generations of stories and the history of a community.

During the Second World War, there was a camp of Polish Soldiers stationed right here in Owen Sound.  Having fled their own country after the German invasion the Polish Government in Exile regrouped and set to the task of reclaiming their country. 

Please visit our website created especially for this exhibit

Near Owen Sound, we have a Polish Soldier Tree symbolizing the living memory of those stationed here during the War. 

Map to Tree is available.
